You remember in a previous post, we mentioned about efforts to restrict town's rights. This is why we did that explanation.
One of our subscribers picked up on an article in this morning's Portland Press Herald.
Basically it is a bill to restrict Maine town's from building their own infrastructure
Here's the lead paragraphs.
Ron contacted Janice Cooper and this was her response.
Dear Mr. McKinnon,
You are probably referring to LD1516 which was the subject of a hearing yesterday. I agree that the bill will discourage broadband development and I will oppose it.
Thank you for your message.
Late this afternoon, we received word that the bill had been withdrawn !
